The songs location has to remain unchanged for the database to work properly. When drive letter changes for the drive the songs are located on, you may try to move them to the other drive, so that the drive letter matches the original location.

Does this mean I have to have siglos on my external drive and not my c drive?

The location where Siglos is installed does not matter. The default folder is recommended. What's important is where the song files are.

A suggestion

There are ways to mask the locations of folders/files so that a program or even the OS thinks that they are where you say they are. The easiest of this is the SUBST command to designate a folder as a drive letter.

The Siglos database is located in the user Document folder so as long as you copy it to the same location on the second OS and make sure that the song files are at the same path which you can modify with a SUBST command you can kinda do whatever you want.

fjallravn, did you check to make sure your drive letter where you have your songs didn't change. If you have your songs is on an external drive and you did not assign the drive letter to the external, but happen to connect another drive prior to connecting your external with your songs the computer will assign the drive letter to the first external whether it be a flash or otherwise.
